What Olivia Cooked: Pancake Pops

Being a blogger, if there’s one thing that isn’t macaroons that go down a treat with the twenty-something style loving lady (or y’know just a chick that has a bit of a sweet tooth)- it’s a cake pop. On top of that, with pancake day being something that probably occurs about once a week in my calendar (I can’t help it) I thought I’d pop up something a little different to the classic crepe, but equally as yummy- and probably a little bit less naughty. The pancake recipe is based on a fluffy American pancake by Jamie Oliver with the pop idea coming from Pinterest, and my love for all things a little bit cute (come on, a pancake, on a stick guys)! The best part is that you can pop anything inside of them- blueberries just adding a little to the guilt-free factor, although I’m sure chocolate chips and marshmallows would be amazing!

You will need:
– A frying pan (heated a little)
– A whisk/electric whisk
– 3 eggs
– 115g plain flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 140ml milk
– A pinch of salt

Pancake Pop Recipe

1. Separate the eggs, and put the egg whites and yolks into two separate bowls. Add the flour, baking powder and milk and mix to make a thick batter.

2. Whisk the whites and pinch of salt until it forms stiff peaks, like a meringue mix (if you’re doing this by hand it could take a while- perseverance is key)!

3. Fold the whites into the yolk batter gently, this is what makes is all very fluffy!

4. Using a teaspoon, create small circle shaped pancakes in your heated pan and leave to brown for a couple of minutes (if that- keep checking at this stage)! You don’t want them to be undercooked, but equally not burnt.

5. Whilst the bottom side is cooking sprinkle your filling/blueberries on the top side, before flipping them over, and leaving for another couple of minutes!

6. Leave to cool for a few seconds and pop the sticks through the centre (these are definitely best warm) and lather with golden syrup, honey or lemon and sugar! Enjoy!
